New Model: Beneteau 49 Flyer Gran Turismo Fly

A new model the Beneteau 49 Flyer Gran Turismo Fly which comes from the rethinking of the 47 Monte Carlo Fly.  The main differences here come from the addition of an extended up and down moving bathing platform and new larger view windows serving the cabins below.  Accommodation below keeps the standard setting of  two cabins, with the owners room located to midships and being full beam.  In between the cabins is an L-shaped galley, and C-shaped saloon settee. The old 47 Monte Carlo used to have a choice for a third cabin bunk in replacement of the saloon, but this so far is not shown in the plans of the 49.  The 49 Flyer Gran Turismo Fly also features a tender garage.  Power is from twin Volvo 435hp with IPS pod drives.
